August 2019

Did you know, you don't have to work in higher education or research to be part of our award-winning fund? We can offer membership to your loved ones too. Since launching Personal Accounts in 2017, thousands of new members are enjoying the same benefits as you. So what’s all the fuss about?

  1. It’s how your family can join UniSuper

    As long as they’re living in Australia and are either related to a UniSuper member, a former member wanting to re-join, or working in an honorary or affiliate role with a university, they can open a Personal Account.

  2. Even your kids can join

    Children aged 15 or more can open a Personal Account. So if your kids are starting their first job, you can be confident their super is being looked after by a Fund you know and trust.

  3. A gateway to UniSuper pensions

    Personal Accounts give retiring family members access to our award winning pensions. In 2017 and 2018, Chant West named us Pension Fund of the Year and our Flexi Pension has a 10-year Platinum Performance rating from SuperRatings.

  4. It’s value for money

    Personal Account fees are amongst the cheapest in the industry, regardless of account balance. Chant West’s December 2018 fee survey ranked our default investment option—Balanced—the lowest-fee option in its category for balances under $250,000, and second and third lowest for $50,000 and $25,000 respectively.

    What makes us good value?

    • We’re a profit-for-members fund so we’ve never paid our advisers commissions or shareholder dividends, and never charged entry or exit fees.
    • Our insurance offering is extremely competitive because we’re able to negotiate premiums at bulk rates. So for those who want insurance, we’ve got you covered!
  5. Strong investment returns

    Super is a powerful investment that needs to deliver healthy returns to support your retirement. Our strong long-term investment returns have regularly exceeded industry benchmarks and averages.1
